Subject RE: p4 sync error
Date Sun, 19 May 2002 17:39:53 GMT
Yeah, that's logical. I had the same problem with CVS. Had an 'update' ANT
target that ran 'cvs update', and since the ANT I was using to run that
target was itself under CVS control, and needed update, it failed as well. I
turned around the issue on Windows by using xcopy to copy the ANT install
under CVS control to another folder not under CVS control. Xcopy is smart
enough (with the right options) to not copy files that didn't change. This
all happens (fast) in the build.bat used to start the ANT build.

Probably the best solution is to check in ANT into a different 'buildtools'
module (updated/synced separately, not from ANT), so that you never run into
this problem.

I think I narrowed down the problem - it happens when you try to sync
ant, that you are using.
This doesn't happen with a p4 sync, even if you are using the ant, only
with the ant p4 sync task.
